Free Music with Grooveshark
You can listen to individual songs or make playlists without as many invasive advertisements as other sites like Youtube.
Artists who upload their songs to Grooveshark cannot earn any royalties unless Grooveshark offers them a contract.
The ultimate free music streaming service
Free music is here to stay, and the radio is no longer the place to get it. Grooveshark is a music streaming service that allows users to listen to all the free music they like from a wide variety of artists. Typing the name of your favorite band, album or artist into their easy-to-use search engine will instantly bring you to a page filled with exactly what you are looking for. Signing up is free, and it’s pretty easy to create your own, customized play list. Grooveshark, like many other streaming platforms, makes its money from advertisements, but they aren’t anywhere near as invasive as the ones found on other popular websites such as Youtube.
From experience, Grooveshark has a bigger selection of free music than it’s rivals. It has all classics as well as today’s big hits. In addition, you can listen to Grooveshark all you like without paying a penny. Granted, you’ll have to listen to advertisements, but that’s the same with anything free on the net these days. The pricing of the subscription plan seems fair at $9.00 per month (about £5.82) or $90.00 (£58.20) for a whole year, and this allows you to listen to music add free, get the desktop app and download apps for smartphones so that you can use the service anywhere.
Grooveshark also allows artists to upload their songs to their website. Signing up for an artist account is also free, but there is no chance to get royalties for sharing your music unless Grooveshark offers you a contract. This being said, the website seems fairly popular nowadays, so the putting up music on it might be a good idea. There is no way for users to buy your songs, but getting music in their head is the first big hurdle musicians need to tackle to make it big.
